Girls on the Run is back . . . but we need volunteer coaches!
The Girls on the Run (GOTR, for 3rd-5th grade girls) and Heart & Sole (H&S for 6th-8th grade girls) curricula are designed to develop and enhance 3rd-8th grade girls’ social, psychological and physical skills and behaviors and has proven to ultimately boost girls' confidence, social connections and interest in school!
In short, Girls on the Run Programs are about WAY MORE THAN running.
Groups of 6 to 12 girls, led by trained volunteer coaches, meet twice a week for 10 weeks after school right on your campus to learn critical skills such as:
• How to manage emotions,
• Helping others and contributing to their community,
• Making intentional decisions and building lives of purpose,
• Resolving conflict at home, at school, and with friends
Physical activity is woven into each lesson to create an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. The season concludes with a celebratory 5K event as a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
Students participating in GOTR and H&S Programs build the social and emotional skills, and connections to both peers and to caring adults, that the pandemic has forced many to forgo for over a year and that are among the top priorities of students themselves.
By hosting a team, you can offer girls a place to not only belong, but to flourish.
In order to host a Girls on the Run or Heart & Sole group on our campus, we need volunteer coaches. No experience required - training is provided. But we need to know if there is interest no later than October 14!
